Moringa vs Spirulina vs Chlorella vs Wheatgrass; What Wins?

Yes, the eternal question. Just who is the King of the Green Powders? It's a question that has caused me many a sleepless night I can tell you.

But thanks to those dead clever people over at One Planet Nutrition - who have put together this rather lovely comparison table containing all the relevant information - I finally have my answer.

So the winner is.....drum roll please..... MORINGA OF COURSE!! 

Whilst they are all extremely nutritious, moringa seems to have the overall edge. Obviously, where moringa is lacking you could always combine it with one of the other super foods. 


moringa is more nutritious than spirulina, wheatgrass and chlorella  


Spirulina is a naturally occuring bluish-green algae. It is very high in protein and - like moringa - contains sources of all essential amino acids. 

Spirulina is high in Omega 3’s fatty acids and also has a significant amount of Omega 6s and Omega 9s.

It has high levels of calcium and iron with many nutrients such as vitamin B6, vitamin C, vitamin D and vitamin A.  

Spirulina vs Chlorella? Chlorella just edges it. 



Chlorella is a blue-green algae much like Spirulina. 

It is rich with phytonutrients, including amino acids, chlorophyll, beta-carotene, potassium, phosphorous, biotin, magnesium and the B-complex vitamins. 

Chlorella is packed with protein, twice as much as spinach. 

Chlorella vs Wheatgrass? Hands down Chlorella. 



Wheatgrass is packed with chlorophyll, phosphorus, calcium, iron, magnesium, and potassium as well as essential enzymes and 19 amino acids. 

The phytonutrient vitamins in Wheatgrass include Vitamin A, B, C, E and K. Experts claim there are 90 out of 102 of the essential minerals and trace minerals in Wheatgrass. 

Wheatgrass vs Spirulina? According to our chart, Spirulina wins out. 


Moringa: The No1 Superfood 

Whilst all of the above are fantastic additions to your diet, the all round nutritional profile of moringa comes out on top.

Moringa is most commonly taken in powder, capsules or tea. The one I prefer is the Moringa powder which I use in my morning Smoothies.

However, moringa is also good in soups and sauces, especially in Indian cooking where it is liberally used. 


Giving Back

For every bag of moringa powder we sell, we will plant a moringa tree in schools and orphanages where child malnutrition exists via our Moringa Tree Project

Great food, great outcome!

In your commentary on Chlorella, you say it is “packed with protein, twice as much as spinach, but less than moringa.” But in the table, prior to this commentary, you provide protein content as follows: Moringa – 23.1, chlorella – 61.3

Hi Neeraj. Moringa powders, capsules, teas are all good. I prefer moringa powder as i can put it in my morning smoothies. You can use it in soups and sauces as well. Without knowing where you are from, I can’t really recommend any Moringa products. If you are in the UK then I can obviously recommend our Moringa leaf powder. In the US, kuli kuli are very good. Peace.
